"The boy grew up without parents. He was lonely, deserted. He was first heroic, but he fell into the darkest realms of despair. He was skilled in combat, and his enemies knew this and feared him. He had no external troubles, his problems were within himself. After all he went through, he never managed to meet any sort of companion, or get any help."

This is a suite of themes that represent this character. It goes on quite long, but covers a wide array of themes and ideas. It has a middle-eastern touch to it, with the Santoor and various percussion instruments. The song centers around one main melody which represents the character's sadness.

This song took a VERY long time, so please tell me what you think and rate it fairly. It is a mixing and composing accomplishment for me, and I'm glad to have it finally finished. Thanks!

If you enjoy it, check out my "Son of the Wind God."

Go for it. Thanks a TON


I was browsing Newgrounds to find a great song for the world map area of my game. Instead I found this, an amazing medley of themes that fit my main character perfectly.

I may not have found what I was looking for, but the games main theme and character theme are sorted!

I love how it goes through all the different themes and you can feel his darkness and despair!

I don't suppose you could break the song into parts? So different themes could be used depending on the circumstance and such. I understand this wasn't made with games in mind so I understand if you don't want to. No harm in asking
though lol

Thank you for creating such a great piece of music!

Well done to you good Sir!

Sorry I got this about six months late. I could do it for you, if you still want. Thanks!

good experience

Big piece! Congratulations. This must have been a lot of work. Very interesting choice of instruments. Were those actual windchimes? You do a nice job of suggesting a story.

Yes, windchimes! Thank you. This one, I poured a LOT of time into it. Thanks. I used a Santur, (the plucky thing,) a Ney Flute, and Taiko drums with some synthetic and metallic percussion.
